Bev Finch and the Saliani Band will play at the Shady Rest this Saturday.

Could be last chance to hear group

Bev Finch and the Saliani Band play at the Shady Rest on April 18

This weekend may be your last opportunity to catch Bev Finch and the Saliani Band in action. They’ll be playing a gig at the Shady Rest in Qualicum Beach on April 18.

According to Finch, some members of the group have other projects on the go.

The band began in a whirl-wind last December when singer-songwriter Finch and guitarist Saliani, who already played as a duet at Deez Bar and Grill, heard that the Parksville Legion’s New Year’s Eve band cancelled. So, the duo called up mid-Island musicians Jay Young, bass, and Dave Kelsberg, percussion, to join up with them to fill that gap.

“We just threw a band together and it worked,” said Finch. “All of the members are talented on their own.”

Together, the musicians play “blues-kissed songs you can dance too,” the singer said.

For their upcoming show at the Shady, Finch said they’ll play blues, folk, roots, some of her own singer-songwriter stuff. They’ll also play cover hits ranging from Joe Cocker to ZZ Ward.

“I love going to the Shady,” said Finch. “It’s a fun place to go. People really appreciate what you’re doing.”

The band will hit the stage at 7 p.m.
